Sorry, I should have phrased that as a question.Thank you.
Is there a module I can buy to achieve this?
I just want the ability to turn off/on remotely or by a timerSorry, I should have phrased that as a question.
As a consumer, you might just want the ability to remotely switch on and/or schedule the charger via an app.
The government wants EV chargers to be remotely supervised via OCCP Comms through a back office.
Both are described as smart.
Which flavour of smart do you want?
b/ fit an app controlled switch eg Sonoff switch into the pilot
Why do you suggest that the OP needs a new protocol controller?Overall, my guess is that £100 worth of parts (Viridian protocol controller and Sonoff switch) would be enough to convert this to an app controlled EV charger
See my latest post. It's likely that the comms module could be removed to make it a dumb charger as per the original design of this charger. Or the Comms module replaced with an app controlled smart phone controller.The item labelled Circutor is a circuit analyser, it basically measures current powerfactor etc. It probably passes the data back via modbus to the Comms Module.
I have a hunch you could swop out the ""Comms module* and to job will be done.
Both solutions may not work with your EV and are not good practice. Switching the charge point off entirely risks the EV "going to sleep" and failing to "wake up" when the unit is switched back on.Brilliant. Either a Din Timer suitably rated as you suggested or a Shelly 1 app controlled switch which is rated 16A, use with a contactor.
The Shelly Switch can be controlled via your smartphone.
Looks as though you have plenty of options 😁
I think we are helping the OP move towards a solution.Both solutions may not work with your EV and are not good practice. Switching the charge point off entirely risks the EV "going to sleep" and failing to "wake up" when the unit is switched back on.
As with previous threads, you should control the CP line.
